    Please note that the younger generations of PS4 have a different setup of connectors to the driver, its sometimes 3 of these as presented but with different sizes and no pad to press down. However, dont be alarmed, just use the pair of tweezers and gently pull them off the connectors of the motherboard. Grab on tight on the blue area of the ribbon cable and pull gently! They tend to sit tight so take some time and patience on this.

This was a great help after my 2 yr old put a coin in my PS4. However when following the steps backwards I got to step 7 which says 'Remove the 5 wire plug attached from the power supply to the motherboard' & couldn't see how to reattach it. I then noticed it looks like I've pulled the whole plastic white casing/plug holder (within the orange rectangle) off the mobo rather than just the plug from the casing. Although the pic looks like the plastic casing does come off the mobo as it's at an angle (maybe why I pulled the whole thing out or maybe I did it right).

I'm thinking I've made a mistake is because now I cant see anywhere that I can 'plug' the 5 L shaped wires on the bottom of the plastic casing back onto the mobo. Plus where they used to be attached there's now 5 tiny silver rectangles on the mobo (2 opposite 3), so I guess these 5 wires were some how adhered to those mobo rectangles by a conductive adhesive of some sort.

Any suggestion for the best repair method would be appreciated.

Thanks

If you've pulled the female end from the motherboard the it need to be resoldered to the board, most likely gonna need to pull the motherboard. It's a very simple connector, sounds as if you yanked the whole thing off.

Is anyone there who try to change the optical drive without change the Motherboard in the same time ? And does it run ?

Thanks for your help.

How about a guide for replacing just the laser unit instead of the whole drive?

I changed the drive with its motherboard, when I want to update the system, an error message appears:

Would this fix the disc ejection issue?

Tim - Ответить

No, as the issue isn't attributable to the drive itself. The issue is the capacitive eject button and the rubber foot on the bottom of the console. The foot expands with the heating and cooling cycles of the machine, and can set off the button just by making any contact at all. I suggest removing it, cutting off the front 1/8", then reinstalling it. That's what worked for me.

Nathan Rice -

This is very useful, however in order to play a new Optical drive a married motherboard must be installed also. Since the these are not plug and play drives.

I recently got a PS4 form a relative that was a busted disk drive because he spilled water on it. the repair man said that the drive controll board is dead bacause foo water damage. What do i do? buy a new whole dirve or will that not work because of MARRage

Daniel Anishchenko - Ответить

I wonder what I could damage. I used tutorial from yt.

Console works, games are running without problems, it is silent after new thermal paste.

But blue ray is dead: - not responding when pressing bottom eject button. - not reading already inside cd. - not accepting any cd - no option to eject from controler options

I wonder what could go wrong. Some cable? Something wrong with this small board that is next to blue ray?

I see small board, 1 4-pin connector, 4 tapes( 1 from motherboard, 3 from blue ray). Everything connected but not working.

Anyone has some clue how I can fix this or investigate?

Lukasz Z - Ответить

I have the exact same problem, I cleaned my very dirty PS4, applied the arctic MX-2 thermal compound, put everything back together. When I fired the PS4 back on the Blu-ray drive doesn't do anything., won't take any discs, the eject button does nothing.

Were you able to fix yours? How did you do it? what was the problem? If not.... can anyone help us both?

Haris -

I have the exact same problem :((((

my Blue ray drive is dead

Ali -

When you remove the blu ray drive one of the most important steps to replacing it (and one that most instructions fail to mention) is the two metal tabs on the drive that hang over the back and left side. Starting withe the rear of the drive make sure the silver tab that hangs off the back slips over the plastic ridge and do the same with the other silver tab on the left side. The first time i tried to clean my optical drive i just popped it in without making sure these two tabs were in the proper position and it was as if there was no power being supplied to the drive.

So quick question. By married motherboard do you mean the board that is on the optical drive itself or are you referring to the whole system board of the PS4? If I bought a new disc drive online and swapped out the disc drive motherboards would that work? Any soldering required, or simply remove some screws? Thank you for your help, just need a quick answer!

Cyology.IO - Ответить

My PS4 is doing the thing where it's constantly trying to eject a disk that isn't in there. It had been doing this for a long time so I tightened the manual "eject" screw, turned it on it's side, removed the rubber foot, unplugged it from the way and let it sit for 10 mins, etc (pretty much everything on the interwebs) this worked for a a few months but it's back to it's old habits. Am I able to just removed the optical drive? All my games are digital copies anywho and having the optical drive has just been annoying (it's now at the point where it ejects every 30 seconds) due to the ejection noises and the beeping.

Harrison - Ответить

Yeah I'm with you. I've tried all that and more. Turning the manual eject screw seemed a temporary fix but even that doesn't work now. Still beeps and ejects. That's why i'm here. Will it help to replace the drive entirely or not? Seems not. I'm mostly digital but I still do have a need for the optical drive.

I removed my old disc drive because it wouldn't accept discs at all. It wouldn't even make a noise....almost like it was just DEAD. So I bought a brand new blu Ray optical drive for the PS4 and I removed the old one and installed the new one. I removed the motherboard from the old and screwed it onto the new one. I am sure I've installed everything like it should be but when I go to insert a disk.... I GET THE EXACT SAME RESULT!!!! No noise and it won't accept the disc. Please help if anyone can think of something I might have forgotten to do or overlooked.

Jason - Ответить

I just don't underatand, I bought another optical drive with a new laser installed and I took out the optical mother board from the new drive replacing it with the original one and I still get un recognized discs and I know for a fact it's the optical drive mother board because I tested the new optical drive with it's mother board and I could play blue rays but not ps4 games which gave me an error pretty much saying not compatable. I swapped back to the original optical mother board and pretty much back to normal again, not recognizing discs and I checked everything, even the rollers. I just don't get it, I always had back luck with play stations. I don't think anyone had changed it before and therefore the optical mother board should still be original, so what's happening here?

I recently took apart my ps4 to replace the thermal paste and since putting it back together the drive will not eject via the button on the ps4 and will not accept a disc.

I can eject the disc via the on screen menu so there is power and I can also hear the drive churning away when I turn the unit on.

Any ideas?

dashiellsarnoff - Ответить

Hi, did you change the small board on the drive?

You have to use the old one from the broken drive, because its connected to the mainboard by some sort of software coding.

Good luck!

If you are just replacing the laser from the disc drive do you still have to replace the motherboard ?

Michael - Ответить

No, just the laser is fine. Do not replace the optical drive PCB or your system will not be able to read discs.

Kara Meyers -

Thanks for posting this. It really helped me get through installing the new optical drive. I did swap out the daughter board on the original drive and I am having a problem with it recognizing disks. Any words of wisdom on that subject?

I hope you kept the original PCB because if not, sorry to say but you'll never be able to use physical games again…. The Renesas chip is on that PCB and it’s married to your console’s APU.

If your drive still doesn’t work after replacing. It’s your motherboard FUSE. Google & replace the F6202 fuse (check the others near it as they could be a problem also). This fixed it for us. No new drive or motherboard needed.

You can reuse the heatsinks from the old motherboard, just be sure to properly clean them and reapply thermal paste. We have a guide for that.
